We had a great visit with our new social worker this weekend. Her name is Debbie, and she was super sweet. We have been very blessed through America World! Our first SW, Rachel, was completely wonderful, too. She and her husband are now in Africa working for AWAA and their program there. The meeting with Debbie was so terrific. We just never know how Lily will react in new situations- whether she will be herself or totally be shy. This time, she showed off her shy-self for about 2 minutes, and then she showed her true personality. She was so happy and giggly. We love being able to share our daughter with people when they are able to see who she truly is. Lily shared with Debbie quickly, and we knew we were on the right track. When she starts sharing with you- she trusts you. So, here are a couple of pictures of Lily in her new carseat. We had to buy another one for our new babysitter. So, Cindy is getting the older one to use throughout the week as she takes Lily to her home in the mornings and back to school in the afternoons.
Lily loves it! She just knew it was for her as soon as we took it out of its box the other day.
Here is Lily climbing up the stairs. This is one of her favorite pasttimes. She is getting quite good at it. Notice the remote control in her hand. That is our Lily...
She is very proud of herself as we watch her make her way upstairs as we watch in waiting in case we need to catch her or something.
This is our Lily after a LONG week. Jamie says that apparently she felt some stress too this week. How would we know that, you may ask... She slept for 4 hours today! She has never slept that long ever. That is following two nights of 12 hour sleep, too. Regardless of whatever the reason for all of the sleeping- we are all looking forward to a good, positive week of a Godly change in our lives. Please pray that Lily will be accepting to this change and that she will become attached to Cindy quickly. I will let you know how tomorrow goes. Bus duty with Lily should be very interesting... it will definitely make it much more fun for me!
Have a blessed week, everyone!
